The Artist (Release Date: 06/01/2012)
In romance drama ‘The Artist’, George Valentin (Jean Dujardin) is a world-famous silent movie superstar. However, his illustrious career looks set to come to an abrupt end when talking pictures arrive, changing the face of cinema forever. At the same, Peppy Miller (Bérénice Bejo), a struggling young dancer, is catapulted into stardom thanks to her natural ability for the new medium. ‘The Artist’, also starring John Goodman (Beyond the Sea, The Big Lebowski), tells the story of what happens when they meet and share their dreams and ambitions.

The Iron Lady (Release Date: 06/01/2012) The Iron Lady’, starring Meryl Streep as Margaret Thatcher, tells the story of how the country’s first female PM broke through traditional barriers to succeed in a male-dominated political world.
With power never coming without a price, this compelling biopic takes us behind the scenes of 10 Downing St and Parliament to examine the cost she paid in terms of relationships and happiness in an intimate portrait of a one of the most controversial leaders in recent UK history.

Player (Release Date: 06/01/2012) Classic heist caper ‘The Italian Job’ is given an Indian makeover by directorial duo Abbas and Mastan Alibhai Burmawalla in ‘Players’. Moving the action to Eastern Europe, the film follows Charlie, a man leading a double life as an accountant by day and super cool criminal by night. Assembling a crack team of specialists, he plans to pull off the biggest and most audacious robbery of the century by liberating a massive consignment of gold in transit. ‘Players’ stars Abhishek Bachchan (Game) and Sonam Kapoor (Mausam).

THE FAVOURITE:The Artist
I thought that Player looked like it could be interesting to see if it’s a good remake/spin off and The Iron Lady is one that has been marketed like crazy as being the film to watch but despite this, I’m incredibly fascinated by The Artist. It looks like it could be an old yet new look at films and it just looks really interesting and I cannot wait to sit down and watch it and see what I think of it!
